Poetry Slams are Olympic-style competitions where poets have 3 minutes to rock the stage and 5 judges give it a score. The Teen Poetry Slam consists of 3 rounds - preliminary, semi-finals, and finals. The top-scoring poets in each preliminary bout move on to the semifinals, with the highest-scoring poet from each preliminary bout winning $50.

Our Semifinal and Final Slams will be on the following dates and locations:
